@mikep Hey Mike yes that's my swan painting! It was done using Mixable oils and letting each layer of paint dry before the next went on the canvas. So now I have since ordered all of Mark's supplies, paints,color checker, proportional divider and have set up my studio just like his. I am learning his method and now I feel like a beginner, lol! My first wet on wet  still life is at best comical. I will plug away at until I get to my best! Thanks for liking my swans!!

    Hi Colleen ---  Frozen shoulder is just awful, I've had friends with it - but no, it's not that. It's bilateral subdeltoid bursitis and I've had it for 40 years.  When I ordered my paints I asked them to please check with Mark to see what kind of pulley arrangement he used when he had a shoulder problem and he has sent over a description of it, so I will get someone to come in and install it for me.  Thank you very much for your help and I see you have just joined DrawMixPaint. I have also just ordered my first supply of paints and a colour-checker and I'm dying to start.    Dianna

      I don't mean the shadow box that the subject is arranged in. I mean the light box that houses the light and is painted white and black inside and sits on top of the shadow box. Also, if that work of the two swans is yours - NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
